Are you looking to gain valuable non profit experience? Do you want to
affect real change in your community and enrich the lives of people in the
area? The Human Resource Development Council is looking to fill a 1 year
Americorps VISTA position at Bozeman's Community Cafe. This VISTA
assignment involves expanding our fledgling Culinary Arts Workforce
Training Program. This program helps individuals struggling with chronic
un/underemployment gain valuable, transferable soft skills as well as
specific culinary and cooking skills. The program connects program
participants to employment and training opportunities in the area. The
VISTA will lead a collaborative community effort to impact workforce
development and employment placement that builds upon previous efforts. The
VISTA will evaluate pilot phases to make program changes to achieve full
program implementation. The VISTA will be responsible for cultivating and
recruiting new employment placement opportunities for graduates and working
with employers to create a formalized feedback system for identifying and
addressing common issues. The VISTA will work closely with community
members and HRDC programs to identify program participants, engage in
placement and training of participants and monitor program activities. The
VISTA will also coordinate with Gallatin College to ensure that the program
will meet their curriculum requirements if they choose to begin a 2-year
degree program. This is a 40 hour per week, 1 year commitment. VISTA
members may now hold outside employment or attend classes with permission
of vista leader if it does not interfere with service.
